Chemistry

For each Kinetic Molecular Theory principle,
do all gases follow this principle all of the time? why or why not?

1. The space between gas molecules is much larger than the molecules themselves.

2. Gas molecules are in constant random motion.

3. The average kinetic energy is determined solely by the temperature.

4. All collisions between gas molecules are perfectly elastic.

5. There are no forces of attraction between gas particles.
